We happily and proudly dedicate this book to
LEIGHTON S. THOMPSON
WHOSE GUIDING SPIRIT HAS
BEEN AN INSPIRATION
TO THE Class of 1939
Sincerely and earnestly, he has helped us solve our problems during these three
years that we have been in high school. He has inspired us with a determination
to seek greater rewards in the world, and, in truth, to make life worth living.
May his splendid example continue on through the coming years.
It is the sincere hope of the 1939 Year Book Staff that
the Tiot will mean more to you than an illustrated
catalog. It is our hope that it will be a living rec-
ollection of our pleasant associations of the
three years we spent together on the Hill.
NORWOOD HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY
As the population of Norwood expanded, the need for a new high school was evi-
dent. In September, 1926, the newly-built school was opened. Situated in an
elevated section in the southwestern part of the town, it creates an atmosphere of
dignity with remote and beautiful surroundings. The building, itself, is considered
one of the finest architectural structures in Massachusetts.
Approximately 500 pupils entered the school in 1926. Mr. Leonard Grant
was principal at this time. He held this position until he was appointed Superin-
tendant of Schools in 1927, when Mr. Herbert Archibald took over the duties of
principal. Mr. Leighton Thompson became principal in 1936. Mr. Lincoln D. Lynch
was appointed as sub-master in 1931, and Mr. Charles Hayden, who is still sub-
master, succeeded him in 1933 when Mr Lynch became Superintendent of Schools.
Miss Gow, who was appointed Dean of Girls in 1929, still holds this office.
With the number of pupils increasing with time, a new wing was built in 1931
to meet the need. The lowest number of graduates of the school occurred in 1927
when 114 students left the school. 236 pupils in 1936 constituted the largest

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
On a beautiful September morning in 1936, two hundred and sixty children poured
into the Senior High School, inwardly rejoicing that they had at last become
Sophomores, who could look down patronizingly on their younger brothers and
sisters left behind in the Junior High or the Parochial School. This was the class
of 1939 — our class. Soon, however, we forgot to look proudly down at those be-
neath us and, instead, looked timidly up at those above. This feeling of timidity
did not last long for we were given a new responsibility. We discovered the prin-
cipal was as new to the school as we were, and in asking us to help him, he made
us feel we were children no longer but responsible adults (.^), ready to help our
newly adopted friend. For, way back in 1936, we adopted Mr. Thompson as OUR
principal and, though classes may come and go, we shall always lay first claim to
him. He has certainly been a friend to us, and we hope we have in some way
“helped,” as we promised to do.
As soon as we were settled in our classes and acquainted with the school and
the teachers, we set about organizing our class. We elected the officers who were
to help us steer our course through the year. As President, we elected Thomas
Folan; Vice-President, Margaret Kelly; Secretary, Bette Shackley (Bette moved
some time later, and, with her going, the Class of 1939 lost a pal indeed); Boys’
Treasurer, David Butters; Girls’ Treasurer, Jenny Patinsky, and A. A. Council
Representative, Alice O’Brien.
The first thing on the social program was the Sophomore party. We enjoyed
ourselves immensely, BUT (we’re ashamed to have to say it!) the faculty thought
we were, to say the very least, a wee bit childish.
When Christmas rolled around, the Class of 1939 showed its dramatic ability
in the Christmas play entitled, “Where Lies the Child?” The cast included Eileen
Nugent, Bronis Mackys, Brony Lutz, Helen Cushman, Eleanor Nicholson, Julius
Kauffman, Anita Gulla, Margaret Kelly, Virginia Brown, Ruth Sparrow, and
Warren Dobson. As we look back, we see that many who were in the Sophomore
play faced the footlights again in their Senior year.
From Christmas until June we went blissfully on, never gaining a name for
ourselves as outstanding scholars, but being generally known as pretty good scouts.
In September, 1937, two hundred and thirty of us gayly returned, no longer
to be looked down upon as the babies of the school. As usual we started out the
year by electing class officers. This time we voted in Renaldo Fateh as President;
Matthew Folan, Vice-President; Martin Lydon, Secretary; Jerome Daunt, Boys’
Treasurer. We showed our appreciation of their excellent service by reelecting
Jenny Patinsky and Alice O’Brien as Girls’ Treasurer and A. A. Council Repre-
On our social calendar for the year we originated what will probably become
a tradition — a Junior Party. Other classes may follow our lead, but we shall re-
member our main purpose in holding this party — to prove that we had grown up
sufficiently to enjoy ourselves without being as skittish as we had been when we
were Sophomores. I’m happy to report that the party was a success both in our
own eyes and in the eyes of the faculty.
Our next social event, and the most important of the year, was the Junior
Prom. The hall was gayly decorated with travel posters, port holes, anchors, and
figures of dancing sailors. The sale of tickets proved the affair a financial success
and beautiful new party dresses, gay smiles, and dancing feet proved it an out-
standing social success.
The shadow of tragedy darkened our Junior year with the death of our class-
mate, Francis Kirby. This made us realize, young though we were, that life has
its serious side.
After a blissful summer vacation, two hundred and eighteen students returned
to school proudly and triumphantly. The Class of 1939 had, at last, become
Seniors. The first event of importance was the election of officers. This time we
reelected Renaldo Fateh to the position of President. Murray Farren was chosen
Vice-President; Mary Towne, Secretary; Jane Billingham, Girls’ Treasurer; Julius
Kauffman, Boys’ Treasurer; and Steven Coakley, A. A. Council Representative.
As Seniors, every class becomes particularly interested in the football team.
The graduation of the Class of 1938 had taken most of the regulars, but we re-
solved to get along beautifully without them. Get along without them we did,
for, under the leadership of Co-captains “Hacker” Donovan and “Zombie” Rus-
setti, the team wound up the season UNDEFEATED!
The first social event of the year was “The Battle of Music,” a dance featuring
two orchestras — The Cavaliers and Billy Reeves’. The other classes seemed to
enjoy this dance as much as we.
In December the entire class was saddened by the loss of our beloved classmate,
John Crowley. We have all missed and shall never forget John’s cheerful and
With the arrival of the new year, it was time to think seriously about getting
through. We decided to follow the lead of the Class of 1938 and have a Year Book.
As Co-editors, we elected Jenny Patinsky and Julius Kauffman. Committees were
assigned and work was begun at once.
About the same time we started work on the Senior Play, “The Goose Hangs
High.” The cast included Bronis Mackys, Virginia Brown, Thelma Turner, Biag
Tronti, Laurie Smith, Valerie Baltadonis, Terrie McLean, Ruth Sparrow, Chester
Stanewick, Anita Gulla, Warren Dobson, Mary Towne, Louis Maguire, Edward
Mattson, Richard Norton, and Bob, the dog, kindly lent by Jerome Daunt. Many
others in the class worked faithfully on various committees to help make the play
the success we are proud to say it was.
Next we began to think about graduation itself. We decided to wear blue
caps and gowns. After some deliberation, we made up our minds to banish tradi-
tion, and we voted to have two class orators instead of a guest speaker. To these
positions were elected Elizabeth Bernier and Brony Lutz.
We were very much divided on the question of an inside or outside graduation.
Two ballots were taken. The first showed a difference of only four and the second
was an exact tie. Finally the matter was taken to the school board and the ques-
tion was decided for us. Graduation will be indoors.
Instead of the Senior party, which was scheduled for April, the class voted to
hold a “Spring Sport Dance” which would be open to the public and which, we
hoped, would add a few dollars to the class pocketbook. The gym was decorated
to represent the World’s Fair, and although the dance was not as great a financial
success as it might have been, those who attended spent another enjoyable evening.
As this goes to press there is still before us our Senior Prom, the stellar event
of the high school program.
On June sixth, about two hundred of the original two hundred and sixty
members of our class will receive diplomas.
As we look back over the history of our class, we find, much to our joy, that
we have been in a certain sense, pioneers. W'e have established several new cus-
toms in the Norwood Senior High School for which we hope we will be remembered.
However, if our ideas do not prove traditional, our fondest hope is that, in the
future, people will think kindly of the Class of 1939.
“Green be the turf above you
Friends of our better days
None knew you but to love you
Nor named you but to praise.”
These three happy years have not been without their sad and solemn moments.
Two of our fellow classmen, Francis Kirby, in his junior year, and John Crowley,
in his senior year, have passed on. They leave with us fond and cherished memories.
With life awaiting, with the future beckoning them on to the realization of their
dreams and possibilities, they quietly obeyed the call of the Master to enjoy life
Socii in Aeternum
JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Advisor — Miss Ruth Johngren Presideyit — David Maitland
In the fall of 1937 a high spirited group of pupils entered through the cherished
portals of the Norwood Senior High School. This was the class of 1940. Whole-
heartedly they shared in the numerous school activities. The class officers of their
first year were David Maitland, Louise Coughlin, John Cook, Majorie Davis,
Robert Meagher, Agnes Bernier and Marguerite D’Espinosa.
Their Sophomore Party and Christmas Play were each handled in a masterful
manner. This class, also, contributed many participants for the various school
activities, especially athletics.
Greater confidence and experience helped the class of ’40 in their junior year
to carry on in even a better fashion than in its sophomore year. The Junior Prom
was a grand success socially and financially. At this prom the gym was gayly
bedecked. The decorations created an atmosphere of a Mexican Fiesta. The
artistic ability of the young people was highly commended, thus adding more
evidence to the fact that the juniors have the right spirit. The Junior Party proved
to be another successful function.
The class officers for the year 1938-1939 are David Maitland, Phoebe Ann
Hayes, Dorothy Berkland, Edward Holman, Agnes Bernier, and Edward Leary.
This group have received the cooperation and interest of each and every member,
all striving to make their class the best ever.
Now, the Class of 1940 is preparing for its final sojourn on the hill. They have
the makings of a fine senior class, and are certain to fulfill all predictions of success.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Advisor — Miss Mary Hubbard President — William Butters
An important day in the lives of some two hundred and twenty-five hopeful mem-
bers of the Class of 1941 dawned on the morning of September 7, 1938. A few
minutes after the peal of the 8:30 bell, the school was a scene of commotion. Hither
and yon scampered the hopeless sophs in a desperate effort to get their bearings.
The resulting congestion in the corridors only tended to add to their confusion.
The learning of the rules is always the first problem of every sophomore class.
Upper classmen, often, purposely direct the bewildered students to remote sections
of the building, such as, the boiler room and the gym. This situation, however,
lasts for only a few days. Then the members mold themselves into a well organized
class, when a thorough acquaintance with the school has been effected. No longer
do they stand victims of the pranks of the seniors and juniors.
The results of the fall elections found William Butters, Louise Gustafson,
Margaret Davol, Bennett Russell, Betty Zephler, and Rocco Silvestri installed
as class officers. This excellent administration has done itself “proud” in the dis-
charge of its duties.
The Class of ’41 has furnished many performers for debating, dramatics,
athletics, and music. One, frequently, notices the names of some of the humble
sophomores outstanding in all of the activities.
The main social event of the year for this class, the Sophomore Party, was a
grand success. This party, perhaps the finest of all high school functions, brought
forth many talented members of the class. The Christmas Play, under the direc-
tion of Miss Gray, produced more hidden talent to provide enjoyment for the two
Having started on the right foot, the class of ’41 promises to become a creditable

It was apparent after the first few days of practice in September that the football
season would be successful.
Meeting Boston College High in the first game Norwood found a strong op-
ponent. Norwood scored early in the game, but a long touchdown run by an enemy
back tied the score; and so it remained until the end of the game — 7-7.
Successive triumphs over Needham (6-0) and Franklin (26-0) brought Nor-
wood to the Framingham game. Here again Norwood met a powerful eleven, and
matched power with power, to win (18-7).
North Quincy, in what proved to be one of the hardest games of the season,
held Norwood at a 7-7 tie.
The next three opponents were easily dispatched: Milford 33-0, Canton 34-0,
and Natick 21-0.
With each victory Norwood became more confident, and by Thanksgiving
Day the team was at its height of physical and mental preparedness. Showing
a brilliant new offense and maintaining a rocklike defense, the Murraymen rose
to a 6-0 victory over traditional Norwood rival — Dedham.
The following players bade Norwood High and Coach Murray a football
farewell at the end of the 1938 season: Co-Captains William Donovan and William
Russetti; Fred Babel, Warren Dobson, Biag Tronti, Ed Simaski, Louis Jiampetro,
Arthur Slaney, Nick Bader, David Butters, and Raymond Kaslauskus.

A total of six games were played; four games were won, one tied, and one lost.
If Norwood’s 1939 football season may be forecast with an eye to the player
material on this year’s Junior Varsity team we feel sure that it will be highly success-
ful, and that Norwood will have another great team.
Junior Varsity games developed a smoothly working backfield, and a clever
line, prepared to accept responsibility on the Varsity.

Forced to be content with winning only two out of twelve games played, the
basketball team concluded the season with, at least, the satisfaction of a victory
over arch rival, Dedham.
Norwood scored a total of 379 points to the opponents’ 471. Three games
were lost by margins of less than five points; Framingham 44-42, Walpole 33-30,
and in the final game, to Dedham, 31-27.
In the first game with Dedham, Norwood played courageous basketball and
emerged victor at the end of a hectic fourth period. The lead changed hands many
times during the game, and it was a basket that registered as the final gun spoke,
that gave Norwood its triumph.
Milford fell easily to the Norwood team in the first game; but, exhibiting a
surprising reversal of form, defeated Norwood in the second game.
Graduating players are: Captain Stephen Coakley, Jasper Pazniokas, Frank
Malacinski, Archie Slaney, Nick Bader, William Donovan, and Carroll Robbins.
Eddie Krasauskus was elected to the 1940 captaincy.
Coach — Mr. H. Bennett Murray Captain — William C. Donovan
Coach Bennett Murray, who annually turns out a good baseball team, seems
certain to enjoy another good season in 1939. Six full-fledged regulars are avail-
able this spring. This forms an excellent nucleus around which to build a team.
The boys, themselves, are anxious to win the Bay State League Championship,
which Norwood has won several times.
Ed Leary, the fireball pitcher, and rollicking “Wag” Flaherty form the main
battery. Infielders Steve Coakley and Captain Bill Donovan, and outfielders Ed
McKelvey and Nick Bader comprise the regular group. These players showed
their worth as outstanding performers last season. Daunt, Krasauskas, Robbins,
Kelly, Mattson, and other promising ball hawks form the rest of the squad.
With a few weeks drilling. Coach Murray will have his team in good condition.
He feels confident that the newcomers will favorably represent Norwood on the
diamond for the season.

Last year’s graduation did not leave the indoor track team with very favorable
prospects for this year, but by dint of hard work and practice Mr. Wheeler got
the squad in shape by the time the season started. Lack of good runners was felt
mostly in the 300 and 600 yard distances; however there are some underclassmen
who showed promise to fill in these positions in the years to come.
Because of lack of money there were only two dual meets this year. The first
was a meet with Boston College High which was held at the Norwood Armory.
Norwood won this meet bv the score of 323/^ to 22J4- The second meet was with
Dedham at the Dedham High School gym. In this meet Norwood met a well-
balanced, experienced foe. Norwood lost this meet by the score of 48 to 21 .
Louis Jiampietro lived up to the promise he had shown by winning the 1000
yard run in both dual meets and coming in fourth in the State Meet. Donald Cody
and Russell Richall, two likely looking sophomores, give promise of becoming
worthy foes in the dash; and Edmund Krasauskas, a junior, looks good in the high
Coach — Mr. Clifford Wheeler
With the formation of the Bay State League, the outdoor track team has a tough
schedule ahead of them. The Bay State League is made up of the teams from all
the surrounding high schools.
Here, as in indoor track, the squad has been hard-hit by graduation but there
are hopes that this can be remedied. The Jiampetro brothers, Louis and Joe, David
Butters, Warren Dobson, and Frank Carchedi have shown good form in the practice
sessions. Coach Wheeler expects to round out some of the promising sophomores
and juniors to complete the team.
The schedule as it has been made out at this time stands thus;

Once again, basketball was the main event on the girls’ sport sheet. Such teams
as Wellesley, Natick, and Needham made up the list of Norwood’s opponents.
The Norwood teams played three class games each and two varsity games,
and each time put up a grand fight. Although they lost a Senior game with Needham
and a first varsity game with Natick, all in all, they had a very successful season.

Coach — Mr. Stanley Fisher
An enthusiastic group of tennis players answered Mr. Fisher’s call to action. Almost
immediately the candidates began afternoon workouts in the gym. Long hours
were spent practicing various strokes and serves. Mr. Fisher is ably developing
the players and is teaching them the arts of racquet wielding.
The team is composed of such fine players as Jack McAuliffe, Richard Tucker,
Brony Lutz, Edward Pendergast, Joseph Murphy, Renzo Ippoliti, Trent Milliken,
and Laurie Smith.
Brony Lutz, Joseph Murphy, Dick Tucker, and Jack McAuliffe seem to be
the stalwarts of the team with their snappy playing.
Regardless of the gruelling schedule, Mr. Fisher seems to be well satisfied with
the team to date.
The schedule consists of; Brockton, North Quincy, Walpole, Wrentham,
Canton and Needham.
Other possible contestants are: North Eastern and Wellesley.
Coach — Miss Ruth Johngren
The amazing number of candidates for the Girls’ Tennis Team overwhelmed the
coaches in the early spring. This unlimited source of material gave the coaches a
major problem in selecting the team. Miss Kiley and Miss Johngren took charge
of the many practice sessions which were held in the gym.
Gradually the squad diminished and a strong team surged forth to practice
on the outdoor courts. Practice games were played with the zest of mid-season
games. Although the schedule for 1939 looks formidable, all indications predict
that this team will ably survive the storm.
A sizable corps of veterans, augmented by a strong sophomore element, com-
prise the squad. The following are on the roster: Geraldine Slavin, Betty McCall,
Molly Riemer, Leona Bateman, Dorothy Pendergast, Louise Gustafson, Betty
Zephler, Jean Hansen, Alice O’Brien, Dorothy Berkland, Frances McDonough and

there are still some fine players on the squad. Eugene Pudsey, Walter Gruesheski,
and John Keady compose the ranks of the veterans. Pudsey and Gruesheski are
certain to have a fine year because of their fine showings previous seasons.
The entire squad consists of Eugene Pudsey, Walter Gruesheski, John Keady,
Russell Millen, Malcom Orent, William Blood, and Edward Conroy.

YEAR BOOK STAFF
Advisor — Mr. John A. Sullivan
During the past school year, the members of the Yearbook Staff have worked very
hard in order to make the “Tiot” the success that it is.
We have met every Wednesday afternoon regularly, and also on other days
when important issues arose.
The problem of choosing a class photographer, a yearbook engraver, and a
printer, was a difficult but interesting one. We received bids from six photographers,
eleven printers, and eleven engravers.
The members of the “Tiot’s” staff are as follows:
Co-Editors in Chief Julius Kauffman, Jennie Patinsky
Advertising Manager Murray Farren
Literary Editor Charles Drummey
Art Editor Helen Pielka
Photography Editor Brony Lutz
Circulating Manager Renaldo Fateh
Faculty Adviser — Mr. John A. Sullivan Chairman — Murray Farren
Early in the year, students were told that there was to be a definite advertising
committee for the Year Book. Forty students were enrolled to try to duplicate
last year’s amazing work in selling ads. When all the ads were obtained, the adver-
tising manager, Murray Farren, set to work in arranging and writing them.
The committee was informed that an enlarged colored portrait, donated by
the class photographer, would be awarded to the member selling the most pages of
ads. Victoria Jacome was the diligent member who captured this prize by having
a total of 26 ads.
The advertising committee should be proud, for they have succeeded in getting
more ads than last year’s committee.
THE QUEST CLUB
(Founded by the Class of 1925)
Director — Miss Ruth Gow President — William Russetti
The Quest Club! What does this club mean to us? To all of us who have gone
through Norwood High School since 1924 these words conjure up the same picture: —
the picture of a towering, shining Christmas tree; a profusion of dolls, footballs,
games, books, mittens, pop-corn, candy, cake and ice-cream; little children, their
Faces shining with ecstasy, scrambling for peanuts, going to “Jerusalem”, reaching
up their little arms to Santa Claus; and ourselves, sitting behind the little children,
and proving by experience rather than precept that, “It is more blessed to give
than to receive”.
For IS years Questers have made true their original slogan, “No child in
Norwood without a Christmas”. But the club has another slogan also: “Once a
Quester, always a Quester”. Have Questers made this slogan also a true one?
Questers go out of the school every year. They have been loyal Questers. They
have worked for the club and helped to raise money for its needs. They remember
the club with affection, and often return to attend its party. But how many of
them contribute to the expense of running the party after they have graduated?
Some, but few.
Why do we not establish a precedent this year? Why do we not resolve to
remain Questers all our lives? To be sure we could not help for, perhaps, several
years. But when we have begun to earn money a donation of 25 cents a year would
probably be within the means of all of us. And don’t you think you would get
25 cents worth of pleasure a year to know you were still really a Quester? If other
classes followed our example soon every Quest Club party could be financed en-
tirely by Questers without the help we have always had from our friends. And
we could feel that, although we did not start the club, we did start it on the way of
Director — Miss Orrelle I. Gray President — Eileen Nugent
The Dramatic Club was organized by a group of Seniors in 1928 under the direction
of Miss Gray. Their aim was to establish and promote dramatic art in the high
school and provide an opportunity for an appreciation of a way to take care of
leisure time. From the original twenty-six charter members, the club has now
grown to a membership of seventy.
Meetings are held alternating Friday afternoons each month, and interesting
programs are presented.
The Class of 1939 has been especially strong with active membership in the
club, and many will be remembered for their exceptional histrionic ability.
During our sophomore year four of our members were elected to important
positions; Eileen Nugent and Margaret Kelly as treasurer and secretary, and
Anita Gulla and Virginia Brown as members of the executive board. In our Soph-
omore play, “Where Lies the Child?” several discovered their possibilities in the
art of acting and began working for the climax of our school productions, the
Many plays have been given at the club meetings as the second Friday of the
month is devoted to a program.
On several occasions members of the club assisted the Dramatic Art Class in
their successful radio broadcasts over Station W.A.A.B.
The officers of the year were as follows:
President Eileen Nugent
Vice-President Levi Salonen
Secretary Virginia Brown
Treasurer Joan Dower
Executive Board — Anita Gulla, Betty Steele, Bronys Macks, Dominic Yelapi, and
Director — Mr. Charles Hayden Captain — William Donovan
One of the best organizations of the high school is the traffic squad. Under the
guidance of Mr. Hayden, this group maintains law and order by stationing officers
at various points throughout the building.
Traffic court is held when a number of students have violated traffic rules.
This assembly, justly, enforces penalties on the accused.
The “cops” are chosen on scholastic and citizenship ratings, which must be
kept if an officer wishes to remain on the squad.
William “Hacker” Donovan is the squad’s captain and is ably assisted by
many seniors. Lieutenants, who assign work to the regular officers, are in charge
of various sections in the building. The system of this group js, perhaps, as fine
a system as can be found in any other schools.
Director — Mr. James H. Butler Preside7it — Louis A. Maguire
The Norwood High School Debating Society under the tutelage of Mr. James
Butler had a very successful season this year. The club was composed for the
most part of juniors with a sprinkling of seniors, and it is expected that next year’s
team will put up a good showing, owing to their previous experiences.
The club engaged in numerous verbal clashes with out-of-town schools and
when outside schools came to the Norwood High School there was, for the most
part, a fairly large audience. The principal topic for debate this year was the
question of “Anglo-American Alliance”, and the “Ludlow War Referendum”.
The President ot this year’s club was Louis A. Maguire; the Vice-President
was Anne Horton; and Lois Butler served as Secretary. The Members of the Club
were as follows: Louis Maguire, James Shyne, Anne Horton, Shirley Engel, Phoebe
Ann Hayes, Shirley Dawson, Renaldo Patch, Dominic Yelapi, Patricia Elliot,
and Jean Robinson.
Director — Professor John V. Dethier
Under the able guidance of Professor Dethier, the Norwood High School Orchestra
has had a very successful season. The Orchestra played in three assemblies. They
also displayed their musical ability at the Senior Play, The Chamber of Commerce
Banquet, Class Day, and at the Graduation exercises.
During the middle of March, Kouko Kahila was appointed to the first seat of
the first trombone section of the All-Eastern Symphony Orchestra.
Special mention must also be made of George Loruso who was appointed to
the first seat of the second violins in the same orchestra.
On February 16 at the Junior High School a capacity audience enjoyed the amusing
presentation of the senior class play “The Goose Hangs High”. The performance
was well attended and considered to be the best given in recent years.
Miss Gray and her future Thespians received many deserved “congrats” for
their fine work.
A big hand to all those who helped make the play a success — ushers, property,
ticket, checking committees, and the Prof’s orchestra. A boost for the seniors for
their fine spirit of cooperation.
Director — Miss Orreli.e J. Gray

Tiot! the name of our yearbook! From whence did it originate? Let us go back
to the early history of New England before the arrival of the white settlers. The
land that Norwood now covers was inhabited by a small tribe of Indians, the
Neponsets, a branch of the great Algonquin family.
The names which the Neponsets gave to places here-abouts were almost always
inspired by their relation to a near by hill or stream. Their names can readily be
distinguished as Indian names because of their harsh sound.
The first syllable of Tiot was difficult to trace as it is not a common Indian
sound. It proved to be an abbreviation of the Indian “teigh”. The root meaning
of the syllable, “ti”, is “river of waters.” The word, “tiot,” was a great discovery,
as it was found in a record of Indian relics. It means an “enclosure of water.”
Though it may seem strange, Norwood is enclosed by water. To enter or
depart from Norwood one must cross a bridge. On the south and east we are en-
circled by the waters of the Neponset River and Mine Brook; on the north and
west by the waters of Bubbling and Purgatory Brooks.
The old country which ran between Norwood and Dedham and dated back
to the time of the Revolution was known as Tiot Road. The name also prevailed
on some of the earliest deeds. When the railroad was laid between Dedham and
Norwood in 1835, the first locomotive was called Tiot.
Because of the favorable location and good roads Tiot flourished. Commerce
and industries came to our town followed by a stream of white settlers. Tiot is
indeed a symbol of our prosperity.

NORWOOD SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
We, the class of One Thousand Nine Hundred and Thirty-Nine of the Norwood
Senior High School in the town of Norwood and the Commonwealth of Massa-
chusetts, after three years of patient toil and earnest concentration, still physically
fit and mentally alert (with the exception of a few) do hereby make and affirm
this to be our Last Will and Testament as we leave these portals of learning to

harmonizing Junior boys to continue the chorus of “My Wild Irish Rose” in the

Article III — To Beverly Fleming we leave Mary Fisher’s lost pounds. Or

get you places, Helen.

It’s up to you girls to carry on the high record these girls are leaving you.

The Class of Nineteen Hundred Thirty-Nine
Place; A pea soup fog in London
Situation: Two figures suddenly collide
David: Excuse me, I wasn’t watching my step.
Magda: Tm sorry. Neither was I.
Dave: Say, I know you. You’re Magda Larson.
Magda: Why, if it isn’t David Butters! I am so glad to see you. I saw that
grand film you made on your last expedition to Africa. I knew you must be in
London. We thought you were going to be a politician, not an explorer.
Dave: I couldn’t resist the lure of Africa. It’s a great place. Quite a few of
our old friends are there. Molly O’Dea is doing missionary work among the natives.
Peggy Eklund is queen of one of the interior tribes.
Magda: Molly wrote that Priscilla Robinson is heading south to revolutionize
the African method of singing. Frances Pascoe is going along. She expects to
find some peace and quiet there.
Dave: Let’s step into this tea shop to get out of the fog. It will be more com-
fortable. Look at the fortune teller! Isn’t that Agnes Lazelle?
Magda: It certainly is. She and Kristina Lukawecki are true business women.
This is their enterprise. Catherine Flaherty and Dot Stowers are cooks here. I
suppose you have noticed the leader of the orchestra?
Dave: It’s Eileen Flynn and the pianist is Helen Hawkins. Ruth Sparrow’s
probably hidden behind the drums.
Magda: No. Ruth plays the tuba. Claire Reynolds is at the drums. Minnie
Boulis does the vocalizing. You see this is a woman’s paradise. Rose Gallazzi,
Elinor Pusatari, and Pauline Connolly are hostesses.
Dave: So I see. Have you been back to the old home town?
Magda: Not recently, but I receive letters now and then. It seems that
Barbara Roberts and Jane Pendergast have given up ushering and have moved
Dave: “Doc” Fateh wrote to me last month. He is vice-president of the
Wemakum Uwearum Shoe Company.
Magda: It seems funny that “Doc” isn’t president. Don’t forget he was
president of our class for two years.
Dave: I guess he didn’t want a third term.
Magda: What happened to the Cavaliers?
Dave: Oh, they are known as the Berkland Barnstormers now. Julius Kauff-
man and Edward Mattson are still tooters. The Barnstormers feature the midget
fire eater, “Archie” Slaney, with his friend Gerry Slavin. Douglas Ross’s trained
seals are a specialty with the show. Of course, Lucy Chully’s trained fleas attract
Magda: The morning papers said that “Dick” Norton, who is an important
dairyman, was sued for putting water in the milk, but “Al” Saterdal, his attorney,
received a verdict of not guilty. I think “Joe” Murphy, the prosecuting attorney,
favored “Dick” because of their friendship.
Dave: “Joe” Praino, “Joe” Sylansky, and William O’Brien are herdsmen on
Magda: Frances Sears and Jean Connolly are teaching grammar school, and
Marise DeRoma is handing out assignments in Cicero at the High School in Nor-
Dave: I heard that Robert Keyes is a surgeon in a rest home out in Colorado.
After making a fortune by swing dancing, Kay Vescio and Lila Venterosa are taking
it easy out there. Marjorie Donlan is their private nurse.
Magda: Have you heard anything about “Gus” Mackys?
Dave: About a month ago he went for an airplane ride. He got so excited he
made a parachute jump and he hasn’t come down yet.
Magda: Poor Gus. He was so fond of airplanes.
Dave: Do you read Evelyn O’Connor’s column in the “New York Blade”?
She wrote that Dot Massey, Alice O’Brien, and “Dot” Lobisser are bringing their
swimming team to the Olympics this year.
Magda: Barbara Foster and Phyllis Webber have set up an observatory in
the Alps where they predict the weather to their hearts’ desire. Alice Coakley is
an expert meteorologist now.
David: “Slug” Simaski is wrestling the Dark Streak next month for the fly-
weight championship. The Streak is a masked figure. He is said to be Francis
Donovan. “Nubby” Pazniokas is refereeing the bout.
Magda: “Joe” Flaherty and “Joe” Ross are working for the Sunshine Wise
Cracker Company. When I was in Paris last week, I ordered a spring wardrobe
at the Bonfatti-Balboni exclusive dress salon. Helen Pielka is their designer.
“Connie” Calderone, Valerie Baltadonis, and Margaret Ryan model the gowns.
Magda: Wasn’t “Laurie” Smith voted the world’s best dressed man?
David: Yes, he nosed out “Dan” Horton by two pairs of trousers and a suit
coat. James Shyne is a professor in Afghanistan. Carl Ransow is his capable
assistant. Mary Purpura is Professor Shyne’s housekeeper. Rita Reardon and
Victoria Jacome are his private secretaries. I took Jenney Wasllunas and Ruth
Svibergson’s new algebra book with me to Africa. Jennie Badger offered valuable
aid to the two authors.
Magda: Eugene Pudsey’s production of Macbeth opened at the Opera House
last week. Virginia Brown played the role of Lady Macbeth. Butch Lydon stole
the show as the doorkeeper.
David: Mary Fisher is running a profitable sight-seeing establishment in
Scotland. Roberta Sword and Margaret Ahearn are her attractive guides. They
still believe in “the more the merrier”.
Magda: Marion Wenstrom, Mary Towne, and Elizabeth Bernier are with the
Metropolitan Opera Company. Kauko Kahila, Cecile Langlois, and Carol Machum
are in the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
David: James O’Leary and Albert Mike are touring the United States giving
typewriting exhibitions. They are the fastest typists in the country.
Madga: Eleanor Nicholson is in Russia learning to say “I love you” correctly.
Martha Gustafson is with her. Martha is acting interpreter.
David: Some of our schoolmates are quite famous. There’s Ferrara’s Hill-
billy band. Renzo Ippolit! is Salvatore’s vocalist. Walter Hauck plays the jew’s
harp. Then Thomas Peter “Buster” Folan tells ghost stories to all the little folks
every afternoon at tour o’clock. Try to get that program on your short wave set,
Magda; they’re pretty good stories. Rachedy Maloof sings the lullaby at the end
of the program.
Magda: “Hacker” Donovan is still carrying the pigskin. He is the coach at
David: Isn’t Billy Russetti the co-coach?
Magda: No. Bill and Warren Dobson and Biag Tronti are coaches at Sargent.
David: Several of the gang became writers. “Dot” Lanier and Louise Lydon
have just published, “Essay on Excuses.” It’s very interesting. Barbara Stanton
wrote the introduction.
Magda: Ruth Mattson is a librarian. Now she can get any book she wants
when she wants it.
David: Gertrude Jackson has a beauty shop in New York. Annie Vitaitis,
with Pauline Wagner’s help, designed most of the new coiffures this season. Helena
Walsh models for them. Helen Cushman must have gotten over her boredom with
life. She married a test pilot.
Magda: What ever happened to Matthew Folan?
David: Oh, he is district manager of the First National Stores in Norwood.
He married Mary Burns. Nat Clancy is on her way to the top in the Empire State
Building. She operates the elevator. The World’s Fair is in Boston this year.

ladder to success. She is a trapeze artist. She and Anita Gulla are the leading
attractions on the midway. Anita models bungalow aprons made of glass. Barbara
Stillitano does a snake charmer dance. Hollis Osterholm is one of the barkers.
Magda: The ring master is James Renton. .After his work on the traffic

David: John Heylin owns the Sweet Creek Cinema. Anne Connolly is at her
old job of ushering. Irene Sulonen is an usher too.

libraries for names beginning with “.A”.
David: Francis Mulkern went to Texas to become a cowboy so he could meet
a lady. What is Carroll Robbins doing?
Magda: Carroll’s a radio comedian. Florence Gallagher is his stooge.

Redwings, had a difficult time hitting the slants of his old classmate, Odie O’Donnell
of the Mississippi Mudcats. Speaking of ball players, John Wag Flaherty went
south with the Yankees last year and now he is their rookie sensation behind the

factory. Albina Medwesky and Beatrice Webber demonstrate her products in the
Catskills every week.
David: Isabel Mutch, Gladys Mazzola, and Gladys Montgomery are on a
